Steam was upgraded to Proton 5.0-5 yesterday, and I tried to launch DOOM Eternal, and got so far as a GPU warning, that AMD cards didn't support HDR, and that AMD was working on the issue. After I clicked on the 'Play' button, it didn't launch. Again. This article talks about Proton getting new Vulkan extensions, and it got Eternal closer to launching, but still no cigar.

I don't know if this applies for you but do you have a working 32-bit vulkan?
/usr/bin/32/vulkaninfo | grep -i devicename
I needed to add wayland-compat32-1.18.0-x86_64-1compat32.txz for 32-bit vulkan to work.
I don't know if DOOM Eternal has 32-bit or 64-bit executable but for some games one need to choose manually to launch 64-bit executable.
Have you tried DXVK 1.6? I don't know how Windows Vulkan games work in wine/proton but maybe they still need DXVK.

I believe DOOM Eternal is a fully 64-bit game and is Vulkan-only. DXVK is a non-issue here, from what I've read.

SUCCESS!!!! Woo-hoo!!!!

Someone finally cracked the DOOM Eternal enigma (how to run the darn thing!)

The steps to get DOOM Eternal to run are linked here, but I'll recap quickly here:

@FTL-Space-Warp

- Download the Proton version I uploaded (https://ufile.io/x58gs3ia or https://uploadfiles.io/x58gs3ia), unpack to ~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d/
NOTE: You'll have to do a mkdir -p root/compatibilitytools.d/ under the .steam directory.

- Make sure you're opted in to the Steam client beta (Steam > Settings > Account > Beta participation)
- Restart Steam
- Add these launch options to DOOM Eternal in Steam: +in_terminal 1 +com_skipIntroVideo 1 +com_skipSignInManager 1

- Choose Proton-tkg 5.4.r10.g7c7868f4 as the Proton version to use for DOOM Eternal

- Rip and Tear!
Sweet!!! Success at long last!!

I turned on the performance metrics, and even at ultra settings, I was getting ~60 FPS, and this is on an AMD FX-8370 w/ 32GB of RAM and an RX 580 w/ 8GB VRAM. Not bad; no slowdowns that I could see. And the level of detail is simply stunning! Puts DOOM 2016 to shame!

When i read "cracked the DOOM Eternal" i remembered that there was an original folder that was distributed with DOOM Eternal that included an drm-free executable.
https://www.ccn.com/cracked-doom-ete...-free-mistake/
I do think that a denuvo free executable is better (one should make a backup of it) but you already got it running.

Yeah, I read about it, but since it ran flawlessly on my machine last night, I see no need to try the DRM-free version (not that I would pirate the game, mind you!)

I now read a bit more and it was only included in the Bethesda.net version and not the steam version.

Probably the reason I couldn't find an 'original' folder inside the DOOMEternal one.

Looks like there will be this upstream fix to handle the VK_KHR_8bit_storage problem.

Yeah, I saw that earlier today, and it will probably help with launching Eternal, but after I installed the open source driver for Vulkan and the modified Proton, I was able to play Eternal.

So this is a good start, but obviously having the Vulkan driver and the Proton package are essential as well.

Happy Slacking (and gaming!)
